McPike Mansion

Located in Alto, Illinois the mansion is being restored by Sharon and George Luedke. It was built in 1869 and the McPike family lived there until 1936.

There are some discrepancies about this, for instance records indicate Paul a. Laichinger owned and lived there from 1909-1930. It’s been empty from mid-fifties either way and the Luedke’s brought it in 1994.

World’s Scariest Ghosts Caught On Tape featured the building and you can take a virtual tour on their website too.

Some believe a whole army haunts the site (I can’t see why) and others that it’s more specific than that. A female servant called ‘Sarah’ is there to greet guests and others suggest another presence in the house is the former owner Laichinger.

Is it haunted or just a good fundraiser for an historical building? You can decide.
